Whalespout on the Horizon
impressionist painting of whale spouting on the horizon

After summering in Alaska, the Pacific Humpback whales begin their annual winter migration and arrive on Maui in December. In the warm tropical waters, they mate, play, give birth and raise their kids. They remain here until late April before heading north once again to Alaska.

It's a rare day during these months that you won't see a whale. Watch the horizon for spouts. If you dive down just a few feet below the ocean's surface, you will also hear their haunting songs. Once you experience this, you will never forget their music. It will always come back to you in your dreams.
